Holy Trinty, Cambo

The present church was consecrated in 1842 and was built by Sir John Trevelyan of nearby Wallington Hall. Cambo was originally a chapelry of Hartburn. The early chapel (12thC - 15thC) was demolished in 1875, a few coffin lids were preserved and now set in the walls of the present building, inside opposite the main entrance. A silver cup made in the reign of Charles I was presented to Cambo Church by Sir John Trevelyan for use as a Chalice. Sir Charles Trevelyan added the tower with a clock and bells. He also rebuilt the present roof. Four windows added as family memorials and the window in the tower were added by Sir Charles' widow. Major internal reconstruction of Cambo Church were made in 1965, including the removal of old panelling and pews were installed.
